Getting to airport after Fifa Match (same evening)?

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to check if my plan to get to the airport right after my Fifa WC match finishes is crazy or it just might work?

I've got a match at the St Petersburg stadium at 5pm - then I have a flight at 11:55pm to Dubai. I'll have to leave the stadium (perhaps before the final whistle to avoid mad rush) - get a taxi to my hotel which is near the Bronze Horseman statue, pick up my bags (since I'll already be checked out) and then head straight to the airport by car (needing to be there by 10pm at least). I figure there's at least 2.5 hours in there of spare time.

Is that too crazy a schedule to try and get out, or could it be possible?

I,ddrop mybags in the morning at aerport's luggage deposit, enjoy the game and go straigt to the airport, there should be a direct free shuttle. Getting ataxi after the game, in a rush with the crowd? This is my view...

"in the morning at aerport's luggage deposit"

I didn't even know that was a thing - that is awesome and convenient.

I actually thought most airports in the world have luggage storage )))

Oops Sorry - I meant I didn't think the shuttle from stadium to airport was a thing, and the luggage storage was an awesome idea.
